My 15 year old daughter is depressed . She has been quiet and moody over the summer and now that she has gone back to school has told me that she feels empty and as if she cant shake this feeling off. She is tall, very good looking , very bright, has happy parents and a good relationship with everyone in the family , isn't being bullied and achieves very high marks at school (think this may have a lot to do with it). Despite all of this she has always struggled with slightly low self esteem but never anything like this. Can anyone give me any advice ?
